And Mary from Fitting Beautifully has a big announcement:


“I’m so excited to share that this week I launched a new pattern company, Fitting Beautifully! I created this company with one idea in mind: everyone should have a custom drafted pattern for whatever they want to make. And, in this age of instant gratification, it should be available at the click of a button, just like other digital indie patterns are.”

“As an avid sewist for my hobby and a computer programmer for my job, I decided that I had the skills to be able to create this pattern company. Now, over a year after I realized this could happen, it’s live! This cutting edge software drafts the pattern to your unique measurements when the pattern is purchased. There is no adjusting needed afterwards; there aren’t even any sizes! It’s just one size of pattern: yours!”

“As of today, there is one pattern available, Emily. It’s a classic skirt silhouette that is designed to flatter all shapes. I can’t wait to offer more perfectly sized patterns soon!” Congratulations, Mary!
